Local Produce
Sorrento and the Amalfi coast are well known for large, magnificent citrus. A variety of goods are produced with these limoni, such as Limoncello, a lemon liqueur and lemon soap. The region is famous for its hand-crafted inlaid wood furniture, music boxes and artefacts. Also hand-made leather shoes, jewellery and ceramics are very popular. Shopping

Via Toledo is Naples’s mainstream shopping high street. Chiaia and Piazza dei Martiri is the place to go for more boutique designer labels. Via Port d’Alba and via dei Tribunali are lined with junk stalls and booksellers. For a true Napoli-style shopping experience head to Porto Nolana for the daily fish market. Thermal baths and relaxation

Antiques
You can also admire antique shops in Vico Equense, Sorrento and the surrounding area. Italians have been trading in antiques for centuries.

Food
Italy is most famous for its pizza and it is impossible to visit Italy without eating a pizza, after all pizza was invented and trasformed in Naples! Pizza are cooked in bread ovens and are fed firewood to reach a high temperature which cooks the pizza quickly and perfectly, with the oven enhancing its flavour. You can order pizzas by the metre, half metre, a 'calzone' (folded in half and sealed around the edges) or a traditional round pizza with any topping of your choice. It is reasonably priced in most areas and is garanteed not to disappoint. Cheese, of all varieties, is hand made by dairymen who have the secrets of the trade handed down generation after generation throughout the region of 'Campania'.

Mozzarella is probably the most famous and is used on most pizzas, but 'provolone', 'caciocavello' and 'ricotta' are all well worth tasting. Seafood is served fresh in most restaurants or can be bought from the local markets and fish shops. Arguably some of the best wines come from Italian grapes. In Italy you can enjoy your favourite Italian wines for much less than you would pay elsewhere.
